OK, so it was brisk. American River Parkway bike trail

Click on the photo to the right to get the full effect.  An amazing day, with nothing else about it to write about but simply that.

Well, there was the coyote that dashed across the trail in hot pursuit, ears alert, the calm herd of deer by the trail, the 20-30 wild turkeys including fanning toms, the river itself at dramatic springtime flow, and the dense and dramatic clouds that turned my ride from warm to frigid at will.

Add to that the freshly blown trail courtesy of county employees, and you have bicycling paradise.  Having bicycled a bit of SoCal “Class 1” bike trail this past week with its frequent interruptions, dirt wash-outs and traffic diversions (not to mention the awesome poodle count), I return to the parkway with renewed appreciation for was has to be one of the best bike trails anywhere.
